Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 to sell 72,000,000 by end of 2017

It's fun looking back at the comments by people who doubt the power of PS4. Many thought 2016 would be it's peak year, yet here it is continuing to smash its own records.

Whoa! PS4 should do another 21 million in 2018. 120 million lifetime sales by late 2020. Should be getting PS5 in 2020.

70 million is a more realistic target imo, I won't be surprised if it goes down slightly yoy, or remains more or less flat. 72 million would require a yoy increase of about 6-7% or so? Even if it does manage it, that's not exactly massive for consoles, the PS3 had several 10% + years of growth in a row, after all.

OP: Have you given up on the idea that the PS4 will crack the 20 million limit for one CY? I seem to remember us having quite a few discussions on the subject, I was always certain it wouldn't and you were just as certain that I was wrong.

necropost gold.

Definitely 70 million. As high as 74 million with a price cut.

Insert CSI "Yeaaaaah" here.

Well well, glad to see this bumped. Congratulations on a successful benchmark Turkish. Reach with little effort as I suspected. Definitly had doubters though.

Now, can it beat 2017 in 2018 and/or 2019 as I predicted?

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
